for massachusetts. here's mitt romney's response. quote. nothing has changed my view that a plan crafted to fit the unique circumstances of a single state should not be grafted on to the entire country. health reform is best crafted by state with bipartisan support and input from its employers as we did without raising taxes and by carefully phasing it in to avoid the type of disruption we are seeing nationally, unquote. romney, by the way, was not invited to attend the president's annual hall speech. defending obama care. >> question, who aside from mitt romney sees the current chaos as disruptive? >> i think romney was right on the mark there. when you have a bipartisan, when the governor is helping you out to implement the program and the government is part of the program, it works. the state that is receptive to government in healthcare. when you go to mississippi, of course, they will do everything to throw monkey wrenches into the process who don't want to implement it. this is his statement. goes directly with obama is saying. wanting the thing to work and not wanting to work. >> ther

, but the white house counters that by saying that in massachusetts when it was introduced, the young people waited until the last minute to do it and them they all did it in the last minute. so it's going according to planned. we'll see what finally works. well, no, some day they will have to actually release the numbers when they know the numbers if anyone does sign up. >>> and then there's a bill to ban workplace discrimination against gays narrowly cleared a procedural road block in the senate with a support of a handful of republicans. passage is said to be likely by the end of this week. the measure will fois an uphill climb in the house where the speaker john boehner opposes it. and i was surprised, there are still some laws on the books that you're allowed to discriminate in certain places, which is -- not everyone i think realizes that at this point in time because so many things have changed recently. right? >> right. it's election day today. did you know this? >> i did. well, i saw the bounce in your step as you came walking in here. >> walking in here. >> he laughs at anything. i

in massachusetts you saw small numbers. you have a lot of time until the deadline. i wonder if we're like -- is this negative momentum we're seeing here. >> you've been around politics in your life, mr. cuomo. the facts or being prepared sometimes don't make sense. the republicans know the 10, 12, 15, senate democrats are in tough races. they are not only waging a national argument but pouring resources into those specific ads to drive to drive the unpopularity of the program up even more, blame the specific democratic senators, senator landrieu of louisiana is partly responsible. senator shaheen of new hampshire is causing this problem with the president. they're looking for the biggest political opening to keep the pressure on the administration from within his own party. it's part of politics. welcome to the beast. >> you're hearing more and more democrats even talking about delaying the deadline. do you think the administration will go along with it? >> we're not at the tip of it but we might get dangerously close. what the administration has said we'll try to do everything we can adm
